Review of Teacher of Civil War Generals in America’s Civil War

During a book signing at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore in Plymouth Meeting, PA, I picked up the July 2016 edition of America’s Civil War. I was delighted to find an excellent review of Teacher of Civil War Generals written by Allen Barra. Barra wrote, “Teacher of Civil War Generals is a fine biographical history, compact and concise, complete with maps of major battles that are models of clarity.”

Barra recognized my intent in writing Smith’s history.

“It is also a plea for giving a great man his due.” “Should the Academy [US Military Academy] ever raise a statue in Charles Smith’s honor, Grant [General U. S. Grant] long ago supplied its dedication: ‘A better soldier or truer man does not live.'”

Thank you Allen Barra for your review.
